Makeup Porn + Some personal stuff

So, I thought since I put together this collage for my friend, Trisha, I may as well post it on my blog.

I had a field day with Amazon and Sugarpill Cosmetics sites during Black Friday, when the sales were just phenomenal. Trish also helped me order a couple awesome-sauce new stuff from Too Faced and Tarte, and since I’m watching Law and Order reruns, I’m short of words and would really prefer if you just looked at the pretty pictures:

Makeup Orgasm, I swear.

That’s a lot of makeup, and I have individual photos – sort of. These are all taken from my phone, but I still must say, the quality is pretty good and just the sight of all my pretty new lovelies and that makes me so happy already! ❤

I'm hooked on these super colorful Sugarpill Cosmetics palettes! They're so beautifully bright and the tutorials available on these palettes are amazing stuff.

I missed picking up this palette in last year's holiday season and it's so beautiful!

OK, back to how beautiful this palette is, would you just look at this awesome cover? It's gorgeous!

I will wholeheartedly confess to buying this set because Trisha bought it and I was jealous.

Did you think i would settle just getting the set? of course not! I bought an extra blush, and the LipSurgence set (again because I was jealous of Trisha's purchase).

I think this is the crowning glory of my purchases. I LOVE this collection and cannot wait to try each one of those blushes, highlights or bronzers!

Can you believe how awesome these stuff are? I’m going to be trying them out the whole of next week and I can’t wait to post looks I’ve done with these!

So besides those purchases, I’m considering picking up the L’Oreal True Match Lucent Foundation, because… umm, do I really need a reason to pick up a new foundation? 🙂 I also saw that the Revlon Just Bitten jumbo lip pencils are out in a limited number of shades, so I’ll be sure to pick up at least 1. I think I probably need a new concealer as well, a liquid one preferably, because even the ultra creamy Benefit Erase Paste has been caking on my hyper-sensitive and very crepe-y eyebags.

Now, Trish told me Drugstore.com is on 20% off, but I don’t know if I can handle the cost of forwarding the shipping again. It’s just awful. Buying all these awesome stuff wasn’t so bad, but the shipping was a complete rip-off, especially the one for the Sephora purchase (that was the Tarte Carried Away set, and the In The Glow set). I’m still thinking if maybe I really can do another haul from Drugstore.com. If my shipping comes up to less than $30, I might consider it.

And now some personal stuff:

So my boyfriend is coming over for Christmas *woot woot*! I don’t think anyone realizes how difficult a long distance relationship is until they’re in it themselves. This is particularly difficult for me, because my boyfriend and I have been living together for almost two years before he had settled to fly back to Manila. Now I know I’m flying back soon myself, but it’s a little difficult certain times, especially since I don’t have a lot of friends and those few that I do are co-workers who I suppose probably don’t really wanna see me outside of office 🙂

Anyway, enough rambling about that. I’m just excited that my boyfriend’s gonna be here soon! And I’m equally excited to try all of those goodies posted above. Wish me luck on sitting on my hands coz I’m pretty sure I might just pick up some stuff on Drugstore.com’s sale.
